Sensor technologies to boost rail traffic through the Arctic
How can longer, faster and more frequent trains cross some Arctic regions where the ground was frozen all year long, and now is melting? How can increasing levels of safe railway transport be guaranteed, when temperatures can vary from +35° to -40° and weather conditions are at the harshest? An ENI CBC project – Arinka II – is dealing with this challenge, working to make the Kolarctic railway network more reliable and effective. And new sensor technologies are at the forefront of the effort.
